— June 8, 2013 — Pop Culture
With the amount of advertisements that consumers see every single day, it takes something truly unique and inventive to catch their attention, and these humorous print ads are turning to laughter in order to stand out from the rest.

While shock value is definitely one approach to getting viewers to stop and stare, creating a visual message that is comical and humorous in nature is also a great alternative to grabbing people's attention. Since laughter is the best medicine and always ends up making people feel much happier and cheerful, what better way to make a product or message stick with consumers than by making it something to chuckle at?

From goofy advice snack ads to potty training pet ads, these humorously created advertisements are striving to make an impression with their comical subject matter and choice of imagery.
